Coach Carroll Answers Questions Via Twitter


Last month, Pete Carroll intrigued Twitter followers by listing several “clues” as to who the Seahawks would select in the NFL Draft.

Each new clue was a song title, and most followers were puzzled with the ambiguity and mystery that developed with each new tweet. Whether Carroll was seriously revealing Seattle’s draft strategy or just fooling around on Twitter is unknown, but Seattle’s newest head coach definitely knows how to entertain on social media.

Earlier this afternoon, Carroll offered his followers a new opportunity:

who’s got questions? gonna answer some for the next few minutes… fire away!

    How come nobody asked what he thought of USC getting handed a bunch of sanctions, losing scholarships, and UW suddenly gaining top tier recruits?

    Maybe someone will ask him that if he fields questions on Twitter again.

    Carroll, however, did recently comment on USC facing sanctions. He said he would be “surprised” if USC is sanctioned.

    As for Washington, you won’t hear me complaining about what Sarkisian has done so far. Everything I’ve heard from Carroll proves he supports Sark and the Dawgs, especially now that he is out of the Pac-10.
